Nimrod R.1 XW665 at Sinsheim, 21st October 2016; Richard E Flagg

XW665 served with 51 Sqn alongside XW664, XW666 and XV249.

The airframe was grounded on 27th October 2010 at RAF Waddington and was scrapped onsite in the summer of 2011. The front fuselage was delivered to the Tecknik Museum in Sinsheim, Germany in August of that year, and put into a storage yard. Sadly it appears that she has been sat there ever since, fading and getting dirtier each year.
